    Mechanics and kinetics of dynamic instability

    Thomas CT Michaels et al.
    A theoretical framework for the growth of microtubules quantifies the roles of geometry, mechanics, kinetics and randomness and provides a phase diagram for dynamic instability in these self-assembled polymers.

    A bacteriophage tubulin harnesses dynamic instability to center DNA in infected cells

    Marcella L Erb et al.
    A bacteriophage tubulin homolog, PhuZ, forms a structure with the biochemical, structural, and functional properties of a simplified, bipolar spindle.

    Interplay between population firing stability and single neuron dynamics in hippocampal networks

    Edden Slomowitz et al.
    Neuronal networks balance flexibility with stability by allowing the firing rate of individual neurons within a network to vary over time, while ensuring that the average firing rate across the network remains constant.

    CTCF and cohesin regulate chromatin loop stability with distinct dynamics

    Anders S Hansen et al.
    Single-molecule imaging of CTCF and cohesin in live cells suggests that chromatin loops are dynamic structures that frequently form and fall apart.

    Structural model for differential cap maturation at growing microtubule ends

    Juan Estévez-Gallego et al.
    The tubulin GTPase cycle structurally modulates the microtubule cap, causing lattice expansion, which is an intermediate state involved in phosphate release and regulatory signaling.

    Structural insight into TPX2-stimulated microtubule assembly

    Rui Zhang et al.
    A combination of cryo-electron microscopy of TPX2 bound to microtubules and in vitro reconstitution experiments reveals a novel microtubule interaction mode that explains how TPX2 promotes microtubule nucleation and stabilization.

    The speed of GTP hydrolysis determines GTP cap size and controls microtubule stability

    Johanna Roostalu et al.
    GTPase-deficient microtubules are hyper-stable and have longer EB binding regions, demonstrating that EBs bind the GTP cap.
